META 2021, the 11th International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals and Plasmonics

University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland

July 20, 2021 – July 23, 2021

META 2022 to be held in Torremolinos - Spain
19-22 July 2022 (hybrid event)

Welcome to META 2021!

Be a part of META 2021, the world’s leading conference on nanophotonics and metamaterials, and take the opportunity to present your recent results, and meet and network with world renowned experts. The program will facilitate discussions on various current hot topics such as metasurfaces & metadevices, topological effects in optics, two-dimensional materials, light-matter interaction in nanocavities, plasmonic circuits, thermal engineering, quantum photonic systems, etc. Featuring several plenary, keynote and invited speakers, the program will provide insights into the latest trends and strategies actionable to deal with the practical challenges faced by the community.
